Hy,

I just bought a Maxtor SATA 120GB 6Y120MO storage device. I have another WD 120 8MB IDE storage device too.
I tried to put these to work toghether. If i let the WD to be master everything works fine. I wanted to put the SATA drive as primary so i got the WD out and installex windows XP on the SATA. After installation i put the WD back and it still boots from the IDE.

The SATA device is connected to the Serial ATA 0 on the motherboard, and the WD IDE is connected to IDE 1.

How can i make my system to boot from the SATA device????

I have: Gigabyte 7N400 Pro Motherboard.

I made all the configurations necesary under bios and i'm stuck.

Thanks.

Check if the BIOS has an option to select which boot device to use - you want SATA.  If it doesn't have this, it may not be possible for them to coexist this way.
